Kara Collins, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Bloomington
Hello! My practice is primarily focused on couples. Common issues I work with include communication, conflict resolution, parenting, sex and intimacy, and a partner or spouse struggling with emotional issues. Many of my couples feel that they have drifted apart or have become resentful towards one another. Others are going through a major life transition or are recovering from an affair.
I have a wide array of strategies, educational points, and techniques I use with couples that help them respond with less defense, accept with greater compassion, and love with deeper connection. Much of what I do is education, simply teaching clients the tools to use and how to use them.
I've done trainings with many of the top leaders in the couples therapy field, including Terry Real, Brent Atkinson, Barry McCarthy, Janice Spring, and Esther Perel. I am proud to say that most couples I work with are still together when I follow up with them years later.
